London. The Hogarth Press. 1923.


Second edition; 8vo; original stiff paper wrappers. Forster shares his love of Alexandria, by evoking the sense of being "on the margins" that he felt Alexandria embodied. On the coast of Africa, peopled by Egyptians, Greeks and Jews, inhabiting a city of steeped in history, the city imparts a poetic feeling to those who position themselves to receive it. Lawrence Durell i C.P. Cavafy, were both influenced by him. A near fine copy just a little darkened to the extremities.

Price £125.00
